Ortofon Concorde Century HiFi Cartridge

Exclusive Series

Following on from the release of their most expensive ever cartridge, the MC Century, Ortofon have also designed a more affordable limited edition cartridge to celebrate their 100th anniversary that harks back to a time when Ortofon’s now iconic DJ cartridge was actually a premium hi-fi offering.

The Concorde Century is a premium Moving Magnet (MM) cartridge, released in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces. Information retrieval is of the highest standard thanks to the Nude Fine Line diamond stylus profile, which will track even the highest frequency information with ease. Additionally, the larger footprint of the stylus combined with the general Concorde design ensures reduced distortion and record wear.

To elevate the sound presentation, Concorde Century uses silver-plated copper wire in the generator system for optimal signal transfer. The end result is a cartridge that delivers a full, relaxed and homogenous sound with space, depth and detail suited to any kind of music.

The shiny chrome finish of the Concorde Century oozes prestige, and the special Ortofon Anniversary logo highlights the exclusive nature of the design. But to achieve an even greater sense of pride in ownership, the Concorde Century is delivered in a sturdy presentation case bearing the anniversary logo, shipped with a user manual and maintenance pack in a tailored purse inside.

Having celebrated many of their previous anniversaries by launching innovative products, the centenary year called for something special. So, alongside the innovative MC Century, the Concorde Century gives a tip of the hat to Ortofon’s illustrious history of pioneering designs.
